Did you watch the excellent TechTalk 'Security Gateway Performance Optimization with Timothy Hall'?

Link to the video:

Link to the slides:


The presentation ended with: "As Check Point administrators, you should always quickly run the “Super Seven” commands whenever you access a firewall to check performance"



So I've created a simple script that executes all super seven performance assessment commands that were mentioned by Timothy Hall . I called the script s7pac.


To install the script on a Security Gateway, simply run the following command in Expert mode:

curl_cli -o /usr/bin/s7pac && chmod +x /usr/bin/s7pac

Or download s7pac here, copy it to your Security Gateway and make it executable.


0.1 First version

0.2 - Added check to make sure script is started on a Security Gateway

      - Output to file in home-directory (format is s7pac_$(hostname)_$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H%M).log)

      - Include page numbers of the book Max Power: Check Point Firewall Performance Optimization - Second Edition

0.3 Added RX-DRP check. Thx to this feedback
